FIFA 17 and Connectivity
I have lately been having some serious problems with EA, and issues with their lovely online infrastructure. Specifically, in regards to FIFA 17.
Losing connectivity is really not a new problem in thus modern age of online gaming, but usually when it happens, it is an across the board disconnect.
This means that while I get booted from the game specific server, I usually lose all internet connection to the Xbox as a whole. This is frustrating and sometimes occurs for stupid reasons, but it makes sense.
With FIFA 17, I have had an issue wherein I am only disconnected (at seemingly random times) from the FIFA servers alone. It can occur at any time, and while it makes sense that you would get kicked if playing in an online game; it also takes you out of Ultimate Team single player modes…due to that mode apparently requiring an always on internet connection.
This is aggravating. Not only have they made what has always seemed an odd game mode the star of the yearly installments of the game (talking about Ultimate Team here), but it now also requires always-on connectivity? I can play other single player modes disconnected to the EA servers, why not this one?
I’m sure it involves cheating prevention of some kind (considering they make me set up a security question…for Ultimate Team), but it is annoying. Of course, maybe this just stems from my dislike of the game mode as it stands.
